AirStash may be a reasonably stupid name, but the gadget itself is pretty clever. Ostensibly an oversized memory card reader for your SD/SDHC and microSD/SDHC media, the AirStash works just as you'd expect when plugged in via USB but, when unplugged, has a WiFi connection so that you can wireless stream content to an iPhone, iPod touch or any wireless-enabled gadget with a browser.

Faster smartphones and other mobile devices are great, but if your storage can't keep up - either in speed or capacity - then you're not getting the best from your shiny new gadget. With that mindset, Samsung have just announced a couple of storage products for mobile devices that are based on their new, 30nm-class high density NAND flash: a 64GB moviNAND embedded memory module and a 32GB microSD card.
Flash memory: it's never exactly going to be interesting. But on the other hand we'll seldom turn our noses up at a large chunk of storage, and so Lexar's latest Memory Stick Micro M2 and SDHC cards will undoubtedly tickle some gamer's soft-spots. Available in 4GB and 8GB capacities, the cards are targeted at Nintendo Wii and DSi owners, together with Sony PSP and PS3 owners.
Two of the biggest companies in memory technology -- Kingston and Rambus -- have announced that they have teamed up to develop a new threaded module prototype using DDR3 RAM for multi-core computing. The two firms report that initial testing shows significant improvement in performance.
SanDisk have just outed a new range of Compact Flash memory cards aimed a pro-photographers, the SanDisk Extreme Pro series, promising capacities ranging from 16GB to 64GB and read/write speeds of 90MB/s.

It's looking like devices have a way of showing up without anyone's consent now a days. At least, the consent of those who make said gadgets. And now that the Magellan RoadMate 1700 has graced the spacious universe of the internet, we can chalk up another victim. This time around we get some GPS-loving action, and while many of you may be thinking there's too many of these things out there on the market already, this little piece of guided technology is just amibitious enough with its standard features, that it could start pulling you away from those other devices.
There's been plenty of images of the Nokia N900, or Rover if you prefer, up until this moment in time, but most of them just seemed to lack that "official" flare. That kind of picture that we all look for, especially when it comes to the alternative "blurry" cam photos. And here we have the official photo of the Nokia internet tablet, which is slated to have an official release date next week, during Nokia World. But, here's the image we've been waiting for, minus a full keyboard, but it does show some awesome headphones.
Intel and Micron have announced a new high-density, cost-effective memory chip, that could bring down the price of flash cards and USB drives. The chip uses 3-bit-per-cell (3bpc) multi-level cell (MLC) NAND technology and is manufactured on a 32nm production line; the two companies are calling it "the industry's smallest and most cost-effective 32-gigabit chip that is currently available on the market."
